common reform as part of raising the debt ceiling. guest: no. host: let's go to stock in texas, republican caller. caller: good morning. thank you very much. i think there should be two priorities for this congress. the first one being a balanced approach to deficit reduction and reduction of the national debt. i do think we have to take a sober look at ourselves from a generational standpoint. i know we don't want to cut entitlements for people who are relying on them. on the other hand, i think we should balance the approach with the fact that the very generations -- the last two and the one we are in, including mine, have caused the problem. there is going to have to be a little bit of pain and suffering across the board if we are going to achieve a goal of sustainability. the other issue -- congressman, and i appreciate any help you can give us -- is immigration. in texas, it is quite evident we have a lot of people who are in the country illegally but are good people who worked jobs for years and have not been any trouble and just want to stay here. i would like to see thi
